Johnson 1881 Census Look Up Please
« on: Wednesday 12 December 07 11:25 GMT (UK) »
Hello,  8)

I am trying to trace my Johnson ancestry but finding it very difficult. I would be very grateful if you could do an 1881 census look up for George Johnson who was born about 1861 in New Durham, Wingate, County Durham. He was a miner and so was his father, also called George, but I do not know when he was born.
In 1886, George jnr was living in Cornforth Lane, Cornforth or Coxhoe, County Durham, when he married Elizabeth Emma Bridges at Holy Trinity Church, West Cornforth, Ferryhill, Durham. Then in 1901 he had moved back to Wingate, County Durham.

Any help or advise would be greatly appreciated,

Many thanks,

Paul Johnson

Thanks all,

I would like to say that's definitely them but, I don't know the name of his mother or the names of his siblings. So, without that information i can't be sure for certain.

I've decided that I will need to buy his birth certificate to find out who his mother is but, I've discovered that i can't find his birth record number.

Can any of you help with this?

Many thanks,

Paul

Hi

If he was born in Wingate Easington is the expected registration district but Durham may have been more convenient.
